30th Street Station Passenger Information Display System

Project Description

Carr & Duff (C&D) installed all required power & communication equipment, raceways, cabling for the new Passenger Information Display System throughout Amtrak’s William H. Gray III 30th Street Station, including the Acela Lounge, concourse, platforms, and sub-platform levels. The existing system remained operational during construction as daily activities for Amtrak, SEPTA, and NJ Transit could not be interrupted. C&D installed an eighteen, 55” monitor video wall, modifying the existing framing of the renowned Solari “flipper” board for the retrofit installation. C&D also worked with the historical society to ensure that the project preserved the historical aesthetics of this Philadelphia landmark.
